    This is a classic dry riesling from Alsace.The nose is a seductive mix of floral with a touch of oil. In the mouth it a lot of different flavors interact together. There are nice fruit notes with a touch of mineral and oil. The Grand Cru influence stands out with the long finish and round and medium bodied mid palate.There is a wonderful crisp finish.

    Please allow me to quickly recap the obvious selling points (Grand Cru under $30! Strong vintage! Riesling, the last world class value white!) before focusing on this particular wine. For starters...damn, does this smell terrific and taste good! In an acid forward vintage like 2014, 'Saering' could very well be an anagram for 'searing, 'as in, 'My, this acidity is searing.' Thing is, great vineyards yield fruit that produces wine which has acidity, fruit intensity, volume and terroir magic, all in perfect balance. All of which are present in this bottle of classically styled Alsatian Riesling. Aromas and flavors remind me of a most delicious fruit salad, one that is particularly heavy on perfectly ripe mandarins. Enjoy with a simple dish of pan fried petrale sole, or something richer like a potato and onion, gruyere and parmesan gratin.

    This wine is paradoxical in the best way. It smells sweet, honied tropical cool yellow fruit accents, yet it is very dry. The aromas and flavor prime you for a heavy unctuous wine yet texturally it light and lively. This wine is complex, long and demands your attention yet it is simply enjoyable. A very, very good wine.

    Wow! This is a very impressive Riesling, from the very first sniff of the glass I knew I had something very special. A vibrant nose of beeswax, stone fruit, orange oil and petrol jump from the glass. On the palate the wines has depth, complexity and unfurls across the palate to reveal pithy orchard fruits and crunchy mineral notes. If you're in search of a fantastic Grand Cru Riesling that won't break the bank this is the wine for you.
    Top Value! Drink from 2018 to 2025
